I Smell Spring!

This image just cracks me up and makes me smile whenever I see it.  That nose in the air sniffing for spring is a bit like me, especially after the incredibly long, drawn out and snow filled winter we had in southern Saskatchewan this year.  I thought spring would never get here and I've been loving it ever since.  It's actually very nice here now because we've had plenty of rain so the trees, grass, etc are lush and green.
This is Whimsy's I Smell Spring image designed by Crissy and the I've used Whimsy's Ticket Die and added a sentiment from the Spring Sentiment set.  The paper is Simple Stories and the brads and mesh juste are from the stash.  That great fabric covered button is Basic Grey.
Copics:  R00, R11, R30, R81, RV00, RV11

Yes it is me Marilyn!!! My grand kids have been on my computer and I could not seem to log in!!!! So here I am. I love pigs Marilyn - if I could have a pig on our wee farm I sure would but hubby does not like pigs. Your pig is gorgeous and I hope nobody eats him!! It would be a shame cause he sure is happy and your beautiful card would be lost without him.

I know what you mean about the weather up there, MN was still cold when we left but green as we had a month of rain!! Love your pig, and the gorgeous clouds in the background, he is adorable. I love the circles you made and how they are off centered, great Idea. This is a fun and beautiful card with your DP , such pretty tones.
Hugs Kelly
